* This is the ultimate reaction towards Poison's AmbiguousGender in ''VideoGame/FinalFight''; she and her palette-swap Roxy started out as cis women in Japan. Nintendo's American [[Bowdlerise Bowdlerization Policy]] didn't like the idea of the player beating up women, so in the early Americanised games, they were made Trans Women, [[UnfortunateImplications (because beating THEM up is SOOOO much better)]]. In later Japanese game appearances she was referred to in manuals and other written materials as "newhalf", a derogatory Japanese term for trans women. Capcom has conceded officially on both sides of the Pacific that she IS trans, but refuse to confirm her operative status if any.

* This is the ultimate reaction towards Poison's AmbiguousGender in ''VideoGame/FinalFight''; she started out as a [=MtF=] {{transsexual}} [[ShesAManInJapan in Japan]], became a ciswoman in the early Americanised games, and finally the creators shrugging their shoulders as to whether she is (and, if so, whether she's pre- or post-gender reassignment surgery) or isn't a transwoman.

* Series/{{Firefly}}: In the pilot episode, when it looks like the Reavers might board the ship, and Inara has a syringe in her hand? All Joss will say is that it was ''not'' a suicide shot.Tim Minear revealed in a closed-door discussion that [[spoiler:the contents of the syringe would kill anybody that tried to rape her.]]
** According to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTxGOi9coWQ Morena]], [[spoiler:Inara was in fact dying of some sort of illness. It seems none of the cast knew what it was or why (presumably the series was canceled before they could explore that any more).]]

* Blue Oyster Cult, per their [[http://www.blueoystercult.com/Interact/FAQ/FAQ.html website FAQ]], have a generic answer to "What does -- lyric mean?": "BOC's lyrics are open to many interpretations, and this is one of the things that has captured the imaginations of fans over the years...The only person that really knows what a lyric means is the lyric writer. So, there is no answer to this question. It means what you make of it."

** Creator/GeorgeLucas officially knows nothing about any of Yoda's backstory or history, despite having crafted elaborate backstories for basically every other character in the series (even ones with less than a minute of screentime) through the ExpandedUniverse. What's his species? They're officially known as [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Yoda%27s_species "Yoda's species"]]. Where did they come from? Nobody knows. How did Yoda end up as the Grandmaster of the Jedi Order? Nobody knows. Why is every known member of his species a Jedi? ''Nobody knows''.

* It's easier to pull out the tongue of a live lion than it is to get a straight answer on ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' symbolism from Creator/KunihikoIkuhara. "[[http://uranime.nekomusume.net/misc/ikuhara_interview.iphtml (Mickey's) stopwatch contains the key to open all the mysteries of the world. And Mickey is the only one who knows that. So I don't know what it is either.]]"
